This guide offers you information and advice on the advantages of choosing organic skin care for mature skin. More and more people are eating organic food and using natural health remedies, but many people don't apply the same logic to their skin care and still buy high street cosmetic brands without considering what goes into them.
Mature skin care: why organic?
According to the Chemical Safe Skincare Campaign, the average woman will introduce 175 chemicals to her blood stream every day through use of cosmetics alone. These can cause a build up of toxins which the body is not equipped to deal with. An organic skin care range offers a natural alternative, helping you to look and feel healthier. Our organic beauty products are created from natural and organic ingredients and are suitable for women who have sensitive skin or allergies.

We do not use any skin-drying alcohol, synthetic fragrances, methylisothiazolinone, parabens, petrochemicals, SLS/SLES (sodium lauryl/laureth sulphate) or any other unnecessary synthetic substances. Mature skin needs products which actively work for immediate results but also provide long term benefits to fight the signs of ageing and defy the turning of time.
Using an organic skin care range for mature skin, such as our Age Defy+ collection, enables you to experience the unique combination of the miracle of nature and the brilliance of science for optimum skin regeneration, moisture balance and deep hydration, whilst targeting the key signs of ageing including: wrinkles, age spots, skin hydration and cell breakdown.
Organic cleansers for a fresh complexion
Cleansing is the first step in your skin care routine. For healthy looking and beautiful mature skin, thorough cleansing twice daily will effectively stimulate cell renewal, lift impurities, accumulated oils and all traces of make-up. Cleansing also stimulates blood circulation, prevents clogged pores and removes any accumulation of dead skin cells that would otherwise affect the absorption of nutrients into your skin. We use organic ingredients rich in antioxidants help to protect the skin from free radicals, nourish and regenerate the skin, improve elasticity and prevent wrinkles.
Exfoliation is the key to radiant skin
Regular deep but gentle exfoliation is essential for mature skin. It stimulates circulation, promotes cell renewal and refines, revealing soft, smooth and radiant skin. Well exfoliated skin also allows moisturisers, serums and oils to penetrate the skin more efficiently.
Aggressive exfoliation and chemical peels should be avoided as these treatments can often cause redness and irritation by triggering an inflammatory response - which can actually accelerate premature ageing. Our organic exfoliator contains natural ingredients such as Pineapple extract, Bentonite Clay and Bamboo Stem extract to gently lift and dissolve dead skin cells, brightening and illuminating your skin.
Use serums to repair and reinvigorate
As we age skin loses hydration, resulting in reduced firmness and elasticity and the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Intensely hydrating organic serums optimise moisturisation and are vital to accelerate the skin's natural renewal process.
Nourish and rejuvenate with a potent organic moisturiser
Moisturising is essential for soft, nourished skin. Apply your moisturiser using light tapping movements over your face, neck and décolletage to stimulate blood circulation and allow the actives to absorb more effectively into your skin. The exceptionally high level of phyto (plant) actives in Age Defy+ products means that you need only use a small amount: less is more.
